There is this hole in the wall vegetarian restaurant near me that makes killer brown rice spring rolls. They come in all different flavors, but my favorite are the curry flavored rolls. Since these are a great healthy option but a really expensive one, I have been experimenting with making my own at home.
Instead of brown rice, I decided to start with rainbow quinoa since it has a bit more protein and iron than brown rice. From there, I knew I wanted traditional Thai flavors so I went with curry pasta, lime juice, brown sugar, and soy sauce and blended that into a bit of light mayonnaise to make the sauce. If you try and stay away from sugar, you could eliminate or replace the brown sugar and you could use yogurt instead of mayonnaise. In terms of vegetables, I wanted something nice and crunchy so I reached for cucumbers, cabbage, and red pepper. That's pretty much it.
